Eating Out: The Skeffington Arms

Also known as The Skeff in Galway city, Ireland I was recently invited to sample the new menu in a local pub in the heart of Galway city. If you've ever strolled through Eyre Square on a sunny day, you've surely noticed the cheer and enthusiasm coming from The Skeff, as its patrons spill onto … Continue reading Eating Out: The Skeffington Arms

Spring Cleaning Part 2: The Body

A lot of advice out there on detoxing and maintaining health is very focused on food and healthy eating. But seeing as I'm very happy with my diet, I've had to make a lot of lifestyle changes this month. A non-food related detox can be the best way to address any underlying issues you may have. … Continue reading Spring Cleaning Part 2: The Body

Fancy Kitchen: Almond & Fennel Pancakes with Sea Bass and Poached Eggs

I love brunch! I love any kind of meal that's supposed to be eaten as a breakfast, but you can have it for dinner too. Honestly, breakfast is my favourite time of the day and it's synonymous with all of my favourite foods; eggs, bacon, avocado, yoghurt (and pancakes!). I had some fennel in the … Continue reading Fancy Kitchen: Almond & Fennel Pancakes with Sea Bass and Poached Eggs

I eat Chocolate every day and never feel guilty

I went home-home for a night during the Easter weekend to see my family, my fur babies and to eat some delicious Sunday roast. Anyone who follows my blog or who bothers to read the #hashtags on my Instagram posts would know that I follow a program called the Carb Nite Solution as part of … Continue reading I eat Chocolate every day and never feel guilty

Spring Cleaning the mind, the body, and the wardrobe – Part One

We all need to do it! We all need to brush the dust away, throw stuff in the bin and start afresh. But a proper Spring Clean is a three-pronged approach and you can't do one without the others. This originally began as a simple, concise article but once I started writing I soon realised … Continue reading Spring Cleaning the mind, the body, and the wardrobe – Part One

SS18 Trends I’m Loving

My wardrobe situation at the moment is ... interesting. I've gone back on my minimalism binge from two years ago. I went through the Style section on ardent fancy and a few old articles caught my attention; Minimise your Wardrobe and the 10 Item Wardrobe. What a throwback! It's too bad I haven't taken my … Continue reading SS18 Trends I’m Loving

Growing pains

The muscle kind.   I've only been a gym-goer for 10 months and I still feel like a real amateur walking in every week. But I'm putting in some good work on this 6 Week Challenge and my focus is pretty set in stone for #goalz. I was walking to my gym last week and thoughts … Continue reading Growing pains

The Fancy Kitchen: Healthy Eating as a student or as a very busy person

The notion of clean eating drags up images of leafy salads and plenty of avocado and coconut milk. While I say 'Oh yes!' to the avocado, plain leafy salads are boring and leave much to the imagination. Eating healthier foods can also come at a cost - time. If you're like me and you get … Continue reading The Fancy Kitchen: Healthy Eating as a student or as a very busy person

The Beauty Powder with Power

As someone who has always produced an insane amount of natural oils and sweat (gross, I know) I am always on the lookout for anything that claims to solve this problem. From €8 deodorant (Which didn't work) to shine control gel, I've pretty much tried it all. My makeup has always really suffered at the … Continue reading The Beauty Powder with Power

The Skin Diet 2.0

I touched base on the allusive Skin Diet nearly two years ago when I was going through a weird paleo/intermittent fasting phase and I did see some improvements. But since I started the carb nite solution, my skin has improved by leaps and bounds. Not just my acne, but the overall texture and appearance are … Continue reading The Skin Diet 2.0
